Get the answer Best solution jbakerlent May 13, 2010 9:05:50 AM All 5870s use GDDR5, there is no difference between any of them except a slight overclock and a different casing/fan combo. Eg Lawns May 13, 2010 9:11:02 AM nope not the one u posted. look at its spec jbakerlent May 13, 2010 9:13:10 AM Umm, I absolutely assure you that they all use the same memory. I believe you are under a misunderstanding. DDR5=GDDR5 Eg Lawns May 13, 2010 9:13:28 AM really? then why does it not say that? jbakerlent May 13, 2010 9:22:12 AM Honestly, I'm not exactly sure... But desktop to clarify, RAM DIMMs (DDR, DDR2, DDR3) cannot be used in graphics cards, so there's no doubt that DDR should really be GDDR. cottonball May 13, 2010 7:33:23 PM All 5870's use GDDR5, if it's not listed then it's a typo plain and simple. dndhatcher May 13, 2010 8:30:16 PM IF you live in the US, then XFXs lifetime warranty is far better than the other companies 2-3 year warranties.
